Extra police have been deployed to Enfield to handle clashes that have broken out this evening after a night of rioting in nearby Tottenham.
At least 200 youths are believed to be in the area Enfield High Street where shop windows have been smashed and a police car attacked.
Scotland Yard confirmed several people have been arrested after looting in the borough.
The Metropolitan police said on Twitter on Sunday night: "Police are responding to a significant amount of criminal activity across London and are deploying officers to tackle it."
